Exactly! But now how should I add this to Mark Down Editor? I am not a programmer and not familiar with these codes. Could you please explain in more  details?
1) Follow this link  :
and download (top right button on the page) the wmd.css file

2) Copy it into the "pagedown" folder, that is here :

<your q2a doc root>\qa-plugin\q2a-markdown-editor\pagedown\
(or : <your q2a doc root>\qa-plugin\q2a-markdown-editor-master\pagedown\
check the exact naming you've used for the markdown plugin's folder)

**replacing** your previous wmd.css file (if you want, make a backup of it before replacing it)

3) clear completely your browser cache

You should now have the feature
Thank you very much for your help. However I don't know why it doesn't work for me. :)
can you upload somewhere (dropbox ?) your plugin folder ?
are you typing `backticks` or 'ticks' ?
I'm typing bachticks.
